So I started with trying some brute force methods. I made up a star nut with eye bolt.
I then started by stripping the bike down, covering it in some rubber to protect the frame, and using the car with some ratchet straps to try and shock the seatpost out... unfortunately the strap kinda snapped. SIlly idea - don't try this at home kids
So more sensibly, a friend had some sailing gubbins and random scrap steel, so we rigged up a pulley system and mechanical advantage.
And then applied some heat.
And hey presto, it slid out.
These days I'd probs saw it out, or try one of those fancy space heater doodahs / cold pack things for bearing installation, or something. Live and learn
